New Englanders know that cranberries are not for holidays alone.
For centuries, this tart fruit--a staple in the Yankee diet since before it was domesticated--has reigned over the cranberry heartland of Barnstable and Plymouth Counties, Massachusetts. Dozens of recipes that utilize the "humble fruit" have risen up over the years, the most popular being cranberry sauce, which one imaginative New Englander paired with lobster. The popularity of the berry exploded in the 1840s, and despite occasional setbacks such as the great pesticide scare of 1959, demand continues to rise to this day. Authors Robert S. Cox and Jacob Walker trace the evolution of cranberry culture in the Bay State, exploring the delectable history of this quintessential New England industry.

Book One in a series: Lainey Harkin is a prosecutor who's on the rise. Sort of. Her boss handed her a gift - a felony prosecution before her first year anniversary. The perfect distraction from the search for her sister who left the family ten years ago.
But felony child abuse is not the case for Lainey to cut her teeth on. The case barely begins before heading south. The girl's father is not who he appears, the mother is insane and to top it off Lainey's instant connection to the abused girl, Ella, hinders her better judgment. Lainey Harkin hoped this case would propel her career and provide justice to an abused child. If the office investigator, Nick Rossi, could help her, it just might do that. Spending time with Nick is a distraction Lainey doesn't need but she must have his help and reluctantly asks him for it. She vows to keep her relationship with Nick professional, but ends up falling for him anyway. Lainey's faith in God is tested when she discovers that Ella's father is not Ron Michaels, a poor man in need of a public defender, but Vinnie Mancini, son of a powerful crime lord. The Mancini family has eluded prosecution for years which makes Lainey more determined than ever to put the abuser behind bars but the case takes on a life of its own. Disturbing events occur as Lainey builds her case against Vinnie and continues the search for her sister. Is she being targeted by a violent family or by someone who doesn't want her sister found?
Plato was born around 2,500 years ago. He lived in a small city-state in Greece and busied himself with the problems of his fellow Greeks, a people living in scattered cities around the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. In all he tried to do for the Greeks he failed. Why, then, should people in the modern world bother to read what he had to say? Does it make sense to go to a Greek thinker for advice on the problems of an age so different from his own? To anyone who has questioned the relevance of Plato to the modern world Richard Crossman s lively book provides a brilliant reply. The problems facing Plato s world bear striking parallels to ours today, the author maintains, so who better to turn to than Plato, the most objective and most ruth observer of the failures of Greek society. Crossman s engaging text provides both an informed introduction to Greek ideas and an original and controversial view of Plato himself."
